Ask a derm…

Q: What’s the best way to tone down self-tanner streaks without aggravating my sensitive skin?

A: “Take a bath, and use a body scrub to exfoliate the darkened skin cells,” says Dr. Lisa Kellett of DLK on Avenue (www.dlkonavenue.com). “A scrub with large particles is best, but if you have sensitive skin, use any exfoliant that doesn’t irritate you. After your bath, go for a moisturizer that contains alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy acid to further slough the skin. Follow this routine twice a day for about two weeks. Professional crystal or diamond micro-dermabrasion treatments can also do the trick.”
